EIW vs. OCI

Postby xfer2013 » Fri Jul 12, 2013 9:53 pm

Just admitted to NYU for transfer admission (yay!).

The acceptance materials talk about EIW--is this different than OCI? What is the difference?

Sorry if stupid question, my current school has OCI, but I've never heard of EIW.

Congrats and welcome! EIW is the same as OCI. Even our Career Services office uses the terms interchangeably.

Okay, cool thanks.

I was half worried that transfers were being offered to participate in something different than OCI!

EIW is the big off-campus recruiting program where all the big firms will be, and where the majority of students secure jobs. When most people on this site refer to OCI, this is NYU's equivalent. NYU actually conducts a smaller, on-campus program with a few smaller firms, and they call that OCI. Sort of confusing, but EIW is all you care about.

Wow, I didn't even know we had a fall OCI separate from EIW...

Its literally a nothing program, and its just for smaller firms that would literally get no bids at EIW. I hadn't heard of a single one of the firms, and I only know like 1 or 2 people who submitted a bid, and it was because they hadn't heard back yet from the EIW firms as far as offers.
